…demands that could also see our mayor wrangle his Team Bandits into agreeing to his Push Bike Wet Dream. Something “city owned eBikes” – could easily resolve – “rented out” at NVCH’s north court plaza at a fraction of the cost and upkeep. An Eco-green cycling city hall revenue making first in Canada!…but then again perhaps not as this would be too easy and cost effective and would give tourists a great alternative cycling option to enjoy our city in the summertime…as in clement summery conditions!”
The intent of my editorial cartoon blog is to bring awareness i.e. getting citizens more engaged in local city politics. Of course not everyone will agree with my POV in just how convoluting, disconnected and polarized our city politics has sorely succumbed under our mayor’s “4 to 3” Team Slate tyrannical takeover of city hall. We are no longer “the voice of the people, rather we are the compliant bought and paid voice of our mayor’s developer pals.”
We are a 2040’s over capacity built city choking in traffic/transit congestion and shrinking street parking. The welfare of CNV is under siege by “vulture developers and undermined by poor city planning.” Making it impossible for many seniors, artists, low and fixed income earners and Millennial families that are UNABLE to afford our gentrifying shortcomings. A city “short changing” our local businesses who can’t find/keep quantitative part-time workers because of our high cost of rental housing. But we do have $20+ million Black Necklace bike lanes for less than 2% willing to cycle daily to work!

Welcome to our city: where reality is not what it deems.
